Triggering your body's ability to heal
Many factors affect your health. This includes exercise, nutrition, sleep, environment and heredity. Chiropractic focuses on maintaining your health naturally. Chiropractic treatment helps your body resist disease, rather than simply treating the symptoms of disease.
Your chiropractic doctor will evaluate you using time-honored methods. This includes consultation, case history, physical examination, laboratory analysis and X-ray examination. In addition, you will receive a careful chiropractic structural examination, with particular attention paid to the spine.
Healing with no drugs or surgery
Chiropractors use a broad range of techniques to locate, analyze and gently correct vertebral misalignments (subluxations) in the spine. Your doctor may use manual adjustment, electrical muscular stimulation, ultrasound or massage. But your doctor will never use pharmaceutical drugs or invasive surgery. Chiropractic is a natural method of healing that stimulates the body's communication system to work more effectively to initiate, control and coordinate the various functions of the cells, organs and systems of the body.
Collaborating as part of your health team
Chiropractors refer patients for medical care when needed. In fact, chiropractors, medical doctors, physical therapists and other health care professionals now work as partners in occupational health, sports medicine and a wide variety of other rehabilitation practices.
